ONDAY, JANUARY s, 10-15 Finds Captured Nazis Different Not Fundamentally Changed But Not So Haughty As In'41 NEW YORK, Jim. 8. (UP)—The •untisli radio quotes a Canadian radio correspondent, Matthew Holton, as saying u ln t German prison- U) ors, captured recently on the Ar- rtenncs front, are less arrogant but • fundamentally much like thc pris- I oners he interviewed back In 1041. Most of the prisoners were about 18, picked young men of an SS formation, chosen for a great offensive which was to Have broken •through to Brussels and Antwerp Says Correspondent Holton: "As I listened to some of them talk, I thought how different they were from the first German prisoners I have seen in tills war. That wns near Tobruk, In thc British dwell offensive of November, 1911. The first German prisoners I saw, young elite troops of the Africa Corps, were almost choking with arrogance. They were so haughty that they would not even accept cigarettes from us. "Since then, 1 have seen tens of thousands of German prisoners und talked to hundreds. They become less and less arrogant. But fundamentally, I'd say, even now, they are still the same. I emphasize thai I am speaking now of the elite troops." Holton looked at them this time with fascination, as one does look at enemy troops. Some o! them were typical Germans in one way, with the Him cruel mouth and thc sharp nose. Now, ..some were typical in another way: Handsome young men intellieent-looklni; and well-built' They might have been.a credit to any country, had they not been reared and nourished on murder " Holton goes on: •"A young sergeant from Leipzig said: -The night before we at• tacked last month, somo of us were addressed by our divisional commander, ne told us that we were chosen lor one of the great deeds of history. He said our task is to ' break (lie power of tho western Allies for the winter, so that Germany could hold up Russia am prepare for the spring. He said- It -is a beautiful thing you do; you may be killed, you probably will bs killed. But our lives are nothing The important tilings are- Germany and Europe, the mother of civilization.'" Three prisoners lold Holt thej thought thai when Germany was beaten, the country would be taken over by the Communists. Some thought Britain and America would see lo it that Germany had a government such as that of the Weimar-Republic,'after the last war borne said quite frankly they expected an Allied military government for 50 years after the war, and ?£- IC , ra 7ul¥ UBlU ' -°C Pretended to think, that Geiniaiiywas not going to be beaten after all. A German officer told him- "Russia and the western Allies will be at each other's throat before this year ends." He added: "We think that .if you win, you nre going (o Break Germany as a nation for ever And that's why we fight so well' When we heard the other day of Churchill's statement 'that East , Prussia was to go to Poland and that the entire population was to je transported, it boosted 1 our will to fight.: It was a hideous thing to " 'Why so hideous?' He was asked. You Germans have been doiiiL' things like that, not only removing whole populations but murdering whole populations.' The German stared at Holdon and asked: "Whom have we killed except a few Poles and Jews?" 1945 Income Tax Primer Treasury Offers To Compute Tax Returns Because Law Is Still Too Complicated BLYTIIEV1LLE COURIER NEWS yet a Here is the first of 10 authoritative, casy-lo-follow articles lolling the wage-earning taxpayer how to prepare his income tnx return.

Phone 2921 THE BELL SYSTEM is preparing to spend more than a billion dollars after the war for tho telephono equipment needed to give tho nation tho communications facilities it wants and expects. In Arkansas, thc telephone company, as its part of the undertaking, plans an expenditure of 10 million dollars in thc communities it serves. This . would be in addition to thc money regularly spent for the normal growth of the business. Thc program will be started as soon as possible after man power, materials, and investment funds arc available. Several years will be required for its comnletion. What will this mean to the people of Arkansas? As rapidly as conditions permit, thc. thousands waiting for telephones will be provided service. They now arc doing without so that the army and navy can have all the communications equipment needed lo win the war. And they have been patient about it, too, Thc farmers will be offered more and better service. Lines will be extended to many areas not now served; and the service will be improved for those who already have telephones. Longdistance lines will bcextendcd^ and new techniques will be used to complete calls faster. This program will mean more work within the telephone industry—while the construction is in progress and afterwards. Outside the industry it will mean work for copper miners, manufacturers, builders, and all the other folks who supply the industry. It is as important to the people of Arkansas as it is to this company that thc Bell System be able to obtain from the investing public the necessary money to build, to expand, to make jobs, and to give better service.
